The Sewing Bug

I bought that dang sewing machine to make Mr. C. a Halloween costume and I haven't looked at it since. It could be time. I'm going to finish the three knitting projects I need to get finished and then I'm diving into some sewing.

First of all, I can't find clothes that I like in the stores anymore. Everything is this stretchy 70's fabric that I hate.

Cases in Point:

Been there. Done this. Don't want to do it again.
What happened to normal clothes? I'm not a big skirt and blouse person. I prefer to wear dresses in the summer or summer slacks. So I guess I'll just make my own dresses if I can't find what I like anymore. I used to sew a lot when my kids were little. I never anticipated doing it again.
But desperate times call for desperate measures!!
